Customer Question
The TV died last...

The TV died last night. I was watching it And turned it off - to start watching a Netflix movie. When I went to start it back up using the Visio remote, it wouldn't start... No picture or sound, nothing... It acts like it has no power - so I assumed that it has a blown fuse, is this possible?

Technician's Assistant: Is your Vizio TV connected to a surge protector or power strip?

Yes, but it has power.

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried to power reset your TV (unplugging the power for 1-2 minutes, then plugging it back in)?

BINGO!!! You saved the day! That was the problem - I'll know that remedy, in the future. Thank you so much....

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the TV Expert to know before I connect you?

No that 's it. I'm glad that I won't have to go buy a new TV!!!

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
